The Lucky Sixpence

Lucky sixpence coin jewellery – Handcrafted and recycled ‘out of circulation’ sixpence coins.

These lovely little lucky charms are a great gift for yourself or anyone you know who was born in 1940’s, 1950’s and 1960’s. Each one is handcrafted from a genuine sixpence. The lucky four leaf clover is hand cut with a traditional jewellers saw. The gorgeous ‘antique’ patina finish is completely natural and original. Check out the drop down menu for a list of currently available years.

You are also welcome to choose the lucky sixpence as a keepsake lucky token to be carried in a purse or wallet. If this option is cozen the design will be created without the necklace loop so it sits flat in a pocket or purse.
If you decide upon a silver chain you are also welcome to choose a little charm to hang from the hand wrought silver ‘hairy growler’ safety hook. These are also 100 % hand made and recycled from silver, bronze and copper coins.

Good luck and best wishes. Handcrafted and recycled in Cambridge, UK.

Size : Approx 19 mm diameter

  13. Gemma


    Gorgeous piece of jewellery, very happy, thank you!!

  14. Lucy

    Well received!

    Bought as a gift for a friend who’s birth year was matched by the sixpence – so as well as being delighted with the present and it’s quality, she was very touched at the extra detail of it being from her birth year. I am very pleased at the service and will use HG again and again.

  15. Jolene

    Love, love, love it!

    This is absolutely beautiful, I’ve bought it as a Christmas present for my daughter and I’m almost tempted not to give it to her!! I will definitely be dropping hints to my husband to buy me something from Hairy Growler! Communication was great – I was told when my ordered would probably arrive, when it was dispatched and how to track it. It arrived less than a week after I ordered and is packaged beautifully, thankyou so much!

  16. Gavin

    Liking it 🙂

    Prompt despatch & receipt – seems a well made product, which is for a Christmas present

    I bought this for a niece sitting exams and chose a sixpence from a significant year. I was very pleased when it arrived – a lovely, quirky, vintage gift and I know she is wearing it.

  22. Justine


    I bought the sixpence necklace as a gift for a friend who has recently been diagnosed with cancer as a small token for her during her treatment and because I felt rather impotent in being able to help. Well she was delighted with the beautiful piece which is her year of birth. So many things said in a simple gift. She is wearing it the whole time and says it is her talisman. Thank you Hairy Growler!

    Lovely, unique…

    My girlfriend loves her lucky sixpence necklace and wears it most days. No evidence, yet, of it actually bringing her good fortune, she is still living with me, for a start!

  30. Rhian

    Excellent item

    Bought for my husband as a Christmas present. He reports that it great, just the right size, light around his neck although he has swapped the black lace for a silver chain. Just waiting to win the lottery now !

    Lovely piece

  32. Lesley


    I ordered a lucky sixpence but wanted it in half I spoke to Les and left it with him. Well he did an amazing job I was over the moon with it. He is inspirational and doesn’t cost the earth really good value for money if you want something different

  33. Jenny

    Quality, unique and collective necklace

    Fantastic necklace and the personalisation of not just the year on the sixpence, but the adaptation of it makes this something special. Purchased as a gift and I know that the recipient will love it.

  34. Rose

    Stunning jewellery

    If you want a special piece of jewellery look no further, everything from ordering to the delivery is done thoughtfully and with great professionalism. I can’t thank him enough. Highly recommend

  35. Louise

    It’s a secret!

    I bought this for myself … but I am not opening it until my Birthday. I am desperate to, having looked at the one I bought my mother. I know I will love it. I’ve always thought sixpences were a beautiful coin. I remember them from my childhood. So pleased to be able to get one for my birth year.
    Treat yourself to something if you can, the Hairy Growler makes magnificent pieces.

  36. Rin

    Most Excellent!

    My boyfriend has been searching for a new pendant and he absolutely loves it. It’s lovely and unique and looks excellent when being worn.

  37. Janice

    This is a well crafted momento.

    I purchased one of these for my friends 60th. She is very pleased with the sixpence and I am thrilled that you were able to craft such a lovely little trinket/keepsake.
    I am saving up to get something special for me next….just too many lovely things to choose from.

  38. TC (verified owner)

    Bought this necklace as a gift for a friend but am a little jealous and am considering keeping it for myself- I’m such a bad person! Have now enquired for Hairy Growler to make our wedding bands; fingers crossed and watch this space!

  39. traceybaston65 (verified owner)

    I’ve ordered one for my partner with his birth year on it, its for his 60th birthday. Your work is second to non Les, its a beautiful piece and my partner loves it. Thank you

  40. kategreg (verified owner)

    Absolutely beautiful. The detail and work gone into the carving is exquisite. A gift for my Mother who was over the moon and the little heart charm is an adorable finishing touch. I wish I had got one for myself. This is the 2nd piece of jewellery I have had from Les and I will most definitely be coming back for more. Great communication and came lovely packaged and in time for Christmas. I can’t thank you enough for the smile it brought to my mums face.
